Super B - Horticulture T8 lamp
Product DescriptionThis is the 5th generation lamp for horticulture, and it took many prototypes and a gaggle of engineers to get right. This is the perfect lamp for cannabis or other plants, for use 4 to 8 hours a day, depending on plant and strain. You would use two of these lamps per 1000 watt HID or equivalent. Read on for more.
This lamp will operate using any generic 32w F32 light fixture (we sell them as well), however, you can power it up as high as 60 watts if you like. This will double output, but cut the life in half. It is designed for tent and small growers (4 to 6 hours a day up close) or for commercial growers in large rooms (6 to 12 hours per day) and has a hybrid design, wrapped around our proven 500ma lamp ends, which give it a long live: over 1000 hours in most applications.
The core of the lamp is our phosphor blend. We are using a modified version of our Flower Power phosphor mix, designed to give a similar UVB profile as the Flower Power but in a smaller package and slightly different spectrum. The Super B has a 34.42% UVB & 65.58% UVA profile (within a percent of the Flower Power) but the UVB output is pushed up close to 300-320nm. It still has more 280nm-300nm output than other brands, but it easier for inexperienced gardeners to work with.
The glass envelope that houses this lamp uses our exclusive Open Glass. Unlike others, we don't use the same glass you would use for a regular office light, as that blocks most of the ultraviolet. Our Open Glass is a specially designed glass that was originally designed for tanning lamps so transparency is exceptional. The end result is that you get more UV transmission. While not as powerful as our Sol Glass, it is still the best bulb you can buy in a T8 sized format.
In the end, the lamp bridges the gap between our Universal UV and our VHO Flower Power lamps, and will work in virtually every environment, while using as little as 20 watts.
Please note these are only rated for 60w each max, so it is good to see our lamps will hold up to being pushed at 200% more power than max rating (and about 500% more than you need), but as he demonstrates, we already get 5x the UV while using around half the electricity, so 20-30w is more than enough. ;)
|Solacure Means Quality|
Solacure ultraviolet lamps aren't just good, we guarantee they are the best. We don't use stock parts anywhere in our products. Our glass is a special blend, and more transparent to UVA and UVB. Our 32 watt lamps use 60 watt rated cathodes and are tested at almost 70 watts of power. Almost all our lamps have built in reflectors. All are designed to be overdriven to extra high wattages. We test, and test, and test our lamps.
We stand behind everything we sell and guarantee each will perform exactly to specification, or we will replace them. We don't want your business this week, we want it every week, and we are willing to earn it. There really is a difference in quality when it comes to ultraviolet bulbs, and Solacure tops the list.
Buy with confidence: We like what we do, and we've been doing it for over 30 years.
